Instructional Leadership Academy

Implement Systems to Impact Student Engagement!

June 6–9, 2022
All Grades

The demands of leadership are more challenging in this era than at any time in our past. Today's leaders are still expected to fulfill traditional job responsibilities (e.g., managing facilities, overseeing budgets, dealing with the public). However, new pressures now face instructional leaders as they strive to close the achievement gap that exists in schools across the country. This five-day institute has been created for leaders who have embraced the challenge of engaging ALL students. Explore qualities and skill sets of effective leadership. Gain a broader and deeper understanding of the basic principles of cooperative learning. Learn tools that can be used to systematically lead a school or district toward increasing achievement of all children. Topics that will be addressed during the course of the academy include the following: implementation rubrics, Structure-A-Month Clubs, walk-through observations, parent education, formal support systems, policy development, lesson planning, and barriers to implementation. Training staff members is a necessary first step. However, implementing systemic measures to ensure teachers successfully implement training in the classroom is critical to school improvement. Learn how to lead your staff so that engagement of all students becomes a reality. WS# 33471
